Yesterday South Africans woke up in the morning and prepared themselves to cast their vote and elect those whom they've faith and trust on since it was local government elections.

We were hoping that this elections will be free and fair without any error on the side of Independent Electoral Commission (IEC). There was an issue with incorrect name of the party printed on the PR.

Meanwhile the Change party and the IEC had reached an “amicable solution” to the party’s complaint about the incorrect name of the party printed on the PR.

Now The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has apologised to the Change Party for an error on the proportional representation (PR) ballot papers in Ekurhuleni and Johannesburg.

This then confirms that the Independent Electoral Commission made a terrible mistakes in Gauteng province, in this two metros. This then nullify that this elections was free and fair. With this mistakes were are we going as the country, this is not something which should be happening on elections because everything must be clear and correct not to confuse voters.
